A 15-year old boy used his fathers AR-15 to defend himself and his 12-year old sister against two burglars at their home just north of Houston, Texas.
Their father is a Harris County Precinct 1 deputy constable, and the boy knew what he had to do to keep himself and his sister alive. Around 2:30 PM, two men tried to break in, with one going through the front door and the other in the back.
The boy grabbed the AR-15 and shot at them. The two later showed up at a Tomball hospital. The adult was hit three times and was flown to Memorial Hermann hospital, while the juvenile was taken back to the crime scene.
We don't try to hide things from our children in law enforcement, Lt. Jeffrey Stauber said. That young boy was protecting his sister. He was in fear for his life and her life.
More stories are coming out about armed citizens defending their lives and property with legally owned firearms. In the span of a week, Breitbart News has reported how a mother used a .38 revolver against an intruder, a man used his weapon to protect his 2-month old son, and a Colorado man invoked the Make My Day law in Colorado in using lethal force to defend himself against three intruders.
Senator Dianne Feinstein and others are trying to push through major gun control laws that would include banning the AR-15, the same gun used by the teenage boy.

Hit the perp three times too.
The perp is lucky he was ABLE to go to a hospital.
Way to go son.
Wrong. He is obviously evil. He used an evil, scary gun. He could just as easily taken that evil gun to a nearby playground or kindergarten and mowed down dozens of toddlers.
No, he should have called 911 and then used harsh language on the minority victims...or engaged the misunderstood “attackers” in conversation to better understand their motivations.
Get with the current meme, damn it. Resistance is futile.
Not an easy task. At least it wasn’t some story about vomit and shells all over the floor. I protect at least 20 homes but they don’t know it.
Dr. Dianne Frankenstein is more like what she should be called.
Now I’m totally confused, how can one defend himself with an assault weapon? Is it not true that you cannot assault someone with a defense weapon?
Took the boy back to the crime scene... “Son, pretty good shooting, but next time aim like this....”
This boy did nothing but put himself and sister in danger by playing with a dangerous firearm! That man could have been killed needlessly.
He has a phone. Why didnt he pick it up and call the police so they could stop this the RIGHT WAY???
Out of control gun ownership is turning us into animals!!
Good for the young man. It took a lot of courage to rise above the element of danger to protect his sister and himself. You enter someones home, as this, you deserve what possibly could happen to the *intruder*
you mean, hate speech? no way, that's no more acceptable than the bad nasty scary gun.
A story with a happy ending. Good for this heroic young man.
Another score for the good guys. ‘Assault’ weapon prevents assault, or far worse for these two youngsters. Kudos to that fast reacting 15 year old and his parents for guiding him so well. A little more range time and both these perps would be closer to room temperature rather than consuming three squares daily.
When big nasty scary guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have big nasty scary guns.
Shoot! If an outlaw with a big nasty scary gun comes to visit me, I want a big nasty scary gun too, at least it will be a fair fight.
Paging the MARXISTS/LIBERAL/SOCIALISTS.
F U B O !!
That AR-15 is so-o evil that the boy should have held up a picture of the gun with an extended magazine and caused then baddies to lose bladder control.
If Dianne Feinstein and chuckie S has their way that is what he will have to use next time, a photo.
Good job, kid!
No, not hate speech....he would have had to specifically avoided the “N word” or any such. That would have justified them killing him, of course. He would have had to say something like “Gee, guys....um, yo, bros....why would you be breaking in ‘n’ s**t? Where’s the love?”
